Is This The Best The Auto Industry Has?
By D. Richards on


2004 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


We purchased a new Toyota Tundra 4Dr. crew cab SR5 April 04. Pros: Very comfortable long distances and handles well on the freeways. And that is all I can say good about it. Cons: Under 1000 miles it started to howl at 45MPH, Toyota replaced the differential unit at 6000 miles but the howl remained unresolved. The EPA freeway is 18(16- 20). I have been lucky to get 15 MPG on near flat desert with cruise from gas station to gas station. Others have stated they get 19-21 in my area and some are 4x4s. We looked at all the crew trucks and read the reviews on them. We must say that the best in the industry has been disappointing. I expected better from Toyota, after all the testimonials.

Best Features

The ride is smooth and comfortable on freeway trips. It handles well on the open road. Roll down rear window helps with temperature control in the summer.

Worst Features

Wish the rear seats were removable or did not take so much space in the cabin. Plastic cabin trim does not stay where intended. Turning radius needs to be smaller. More AC air flow in rear. Better fuel efficiency. Chromed steel front bumper. Substantial steel rear bumper. Roof insulation.
